There have been many stories about how the Cobb Salad came into existence, but here's a brief story about this from the owners of the Brown Derby Restaurant.
One evening in 1937, the owner Bob Cobb who was hungry went through the restaurant's kitchen, looking for a snack for him and his friend Sid Grauman. What came out of it was this salad. Sid thought it was so good, he suggested that Bob add it to the menu.
The salad became an overnight sensation and it has stayed popular since.
